In the loved-up snap, Faryal, 26, can be seen cuddling up to her husband on a sofa whilst wearing festive pyjama bottoms and polka dot socks. Amir has both arms around his wife and is seen smiling for the camera whilst also dressed casually in a pair of adidas tracksuit bottoms.
He captioned the snap: “With my 4 month pregnant wife, after sorting out all the issues. Closing the year with a happy ending.”
Faryal responded by posting on Instagram a quote from writer RM Drake: “I hope one day, we find each other again and laugh over whatever pain we might have caused.” she shared a picture of Amir and their three-year old daughter Lamaisah last weekend. Faryal hinted at a brighter future after months of pain and separation: “We’re going to be doing this all over again.”
Their public split began in August when Amir announced via Twitter that they were breaking up.
“So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I’m currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best,” Amir told his followers.
The world champion went on to criticise her behaviour, alleging bluntly: “Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer @anthonyfjoshua.”
Faryal appeared to hit out via her own account, “stop making false things up”. Hitting back at his claims that she was a “golddigger”, she started: “I’ve always defending a cheat, always stuck around for him, always had his back. And I’m called a gold digger?”
“He’s given me jack s*** – I pay house bills and bills for my daughter myself! It’s like I’m a single mother while he’s out messing.
“The amount of evidence I have on you. It can destroy you. But since I loved you at one point in my life, I’ll just let it go.”
Shortly after Faryal confirmed that she was expecting second child: “Alhumdulilah, blessed with baby number 2 in my tummy #excited eating away, can’t stop.”
And now it seems the couple have decided to put the past behind them as they prepare to expand their family together
